I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Rob Zombie - Hellbilly Deluxe

"Superbeast", man, what a song. Simple, but with just enough layers to give it depth. Catchy, but with a dark as fuck feel. Powerful, in a word. This whole album is pretty much great. There's only really one or two songs that lag behind a bit, but they're so different from the rest of the material that they are welcomed as a nice break. There's enough catchiness here that it'll be coming out your ears. Most of it is powerful and certainly has a wonderfully dark and menacing quality that is rarely heard these days. There's not much variation through the album, but there doesn't need to be. I didn't feel tired by the end at all. Great album. I can objectively say that it's better than anything White Zombie did... SUCK ON THAT, FAGGOTS.
